Obituary of Nicolas Landeros

Nicolas Landeros, age 95, passed away peacefully on February 20, 2020. He was born on September 10, 1924 in Bronsville, Texas. He became an agriculture laborer and settled in Fillmore, California in 1959. He loved Ventura County and took advantage of all the beauty it has to offer. He taught each of his children how to swim at the Piru Lake and how to fish at the Ventura Beach. For work he planted and harvested crops throughout many fields from Southern to Northern California and into Washington state. He also enjoyed growing fruit trees of his own and had an uncanny ability to produce a unique version of sweet oranges and tangerines. His grandchildren were big fans of his fruits and it was something they always enjoyed. Nicolas could often be found among his many citrus trees that line his beloved home on Foothill Drive. During his retirement years he remained active taking daily walks, tending to his crops at the school farm, and attending events at the Senior Center, where he proudly received a Best Dancer award. Nicolas will be fondly remembered as a loving family man and a kind friend. He is now united in heaven with his wife, Gabriela (1999) and son, Rigo Landeros (2016). He is survived by sons Nicholas Landeros (Gail Simpson) of Ventura, CA, Francisco Landeros, Cristobal Landeros of Fillmore, CA and daughters Abigail (Salvador) Sandoval of Adelanto, CA, Anna (Gerald) Cervantes of Fort Wayne, IN, Josie (Tony) Alamillo of Palmdale, CA and Laura Landeros of Fillmore, CA. He is also survived by 15 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren who will miss their "Grandpa Nico" dearly. He is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
